Welcome to Team Hoya Blue!

2023 marks 13 years since my family, my friends, my medical team, and I said bye bye to my brain tumor!!  Please join me and Team Hoya Blue to log some miles in support of this year's Run for the Rose.  I would love for you to support the cause with a donation, if you can.

The Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation was founded in 2002 in memory of Dr. Marnie Rose, a 28-year-old pediatric resident who passed away from what is considered one of the deadliest of human cancers, a glioblastoma (or GBM). The Run honors Marnie's spirit, courage, and strength and benefits two causes that touched her life so personally — brain cancer and children.

The unwavering support from donors to the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation has enabled the foundation to give more than $6 million over the past 16 years. Funds remain in Houston and are used immediately to enhance patient care by enabling clinical trials and expediting treatments from the lab to the patient.  Brain cancer patients do not have the luxury of time. 

Researchers receive immediate funding rather than waiting months or years. Our funds have led to extended survival for many patients.

Your donation truly is a gift of life!
